Here’s what’s known about The Division’s crafting

Wait a minute, what? There’s crafting in The Division shooter that Ubisoft is setting in the Clancyverse? Apparently so, according to a new YouTube video that summarizes everything known from various sources.

The Division’s crafting will purportedly be “important but approachable,” as well as focused and fairly hardcore. It can “also somewhat be ignored depending on player preference.” So that’s all cleared up.

If you’re still confuzzled by The Division’s crafting, well, me too. Fortunately the video has a few shots of the interface, which maintains the immersive floating HUD look for which the game is semi-famous. The Division is currently slated for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. There is no release date.

Datamining suggests The Division’s alpha test is en route

Dataminers on Reddit have unearthed publicly accessible but undisplayed code on The Division’s website that suggests alpha is on the way.

There’s no official announcement, but if set live, the code appears to link to what will eventually be the game’s alpha signup page.

Earlier this month, Ubisoft confirmed that The Division is still on track for a 2015 release. Last spring, developers delayed the game from 2014 to 2015, citing a desire to fully finish the game rather than shove out an incomplete concept piece. It’s being billed as an open-world online shooter with RPG elements.
